This event is 21 and over
Columbus, Ohio power-blues trio Mount Carmel have produced another nugget of early-70s rock for your listening enjoyment, and its name is Real Women. Out now on Siltbreeze, the album by the difficult-to-Google group is a straightforward collection of tunes that sound like they could have been put to record four decades ago. Or just this past year, as is actually the case!
The band's first album since their 2010 self-titled release, Real Women makes you want to put on your bell-bottomed jeans, grow your hair out and part it down the middle like any good, rock-loving white person of your parents' generation. Take a trip back in time without all the hassle of accidentally having sex with your mom/dad by checking out the new album, lighting some incense and partaking in your libation of choice.
Sons of the West
Blooze, soul, rock and roll
Sons of the West is made up of three dudes who met while doing time at a high school outside of Columbus, Ohio. They originally came together over their shared passion for unhinged, lo-fi guitar solos and the unbridled energy in the music of garage rock heroes like The White Stripes, The Strokes, and The Stooges. Over the years, the band has mixed other influences from classic blues, soul and rock 'n' roll into their own sonic concoction that they call "gut-punching whiskey-teardrop rock." In the summer of 2009, Sons of the West recorded their self-titled, debut LP in New York City with producer Aaron Lee Tasjan (New York Dolls, Alberta Cross) before packing up and moving to Chicago. Since then, they have been relentlessly playing shows throughout the city, hitting venues like Lincoln Hall and Schuba's along the way. After playing at SXSW in 2011, they made their second record, the five-song EP "I Will Never Be Your Friend (A Shot in the Back)" which they released in the fall of 2012.
